We found growing our own popcorn very easy! Grow like regular sweet corn, but let dry on the stalk. After it dries quite a bit, we hang it up on our beams in the kitchen to dry completely. We test some after a month or two until it pops well. Then take to ears and rub together until the kernels come off. It's best to do this in a paper bag as they tend to fly all over. We store the corn in an airtight container. We go through a lot of corn over the year. We like the Japanese white hull-less popcorn. It doesn't get stuck between your teeth, and tastes great!!
